Posted on 04/24/2011 6:31:35 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
A transgender woman beaten at a Baltimore County McDonald's spoke out on Saturday, saying that the attack was "definitely a hate crime" and that she's been afraid to go out in public ever since.
"They said, 'That's a dude, that's a dude and she's in the female bathroom,' " said Chrissy Lee Polis, 22, who said she stopped at the Rosedale restaurant to use the restroom. "They spit in my face."
A worker at the restaurant taped Monday's attack and created a graphic video that went viral last week. After the video garnered hundreds of thousands of views on websites, McDonald's issued a statement condemning the incident, and on Saturday the worker who taped the incident was fired.
The video shows two females one of them a 14-year-old girl repeatedly kicking and punching Polis in the head as an employee and a patron try to intervene. Others can be heard laughing, and men are seen standing idly by.
....Her twin brother, Matty Polis, who also lives in Baltimore, said it's been painful to watch her have to endure these sorts of attacks.
"My sister has gotten this her entire life," Matty Polis said. "Being the way she is, she's always had a hard time."
Polis, who was raised by her grandmother in Dundalk and Essex, graduated from Chesapeake High and hasn't had a job or stable place to stay for the past two years, according to her mother, Angela Thomas.
Polis, who is white, believes race may have also been a factor in her attack both the assailants were black, according to the police report.
Equality Maryland has called on state Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler to step in and investigate the case as a hate crime.

The American community needs to focus like a laser on how this crime is handled and how the msm and the government handles all the parties involved.
I too have stopped at McDonalds to use the restroom (sometimes I buy a drink too, sometimes not). To date I ("old," white, dudette) have not been assaulted.
Are white, religious U.S. citizens protected under the law? U.S. Attorney Eric Holder has given this some though and he shared his views with the Senate Judiciary Committee on June 25, 2011:
[excerpt] RUSH: I want you to hear this. June 25th, a week ago, Senate Judiciary Committee, Eric Holder testifying, and this is the question. "Jeff Sessions presents a hypothetical where a minister gives a sermon, quotes the Bible about homosexuality and is thereafter attacked..." You know what the media didn't pick up yet? Whether liberalism is chosen or whether you're born with it. Once they get through the fog of the Jackson death, Media Matters will get that to 'em. I'm sure they have it. It's just a matter of it hasn't penetrated the fog there at the editors' desks. Anyway, a question, hypothetical. "[A] minister gives a sermon, quotes the Bible about homosexuality, is thereafter attacked by a gay activist because of what the minister said about his religious beliefs and what Scripture says about homosexuality." Is the minister protected, is what Sessions said. Here's a portion of the answer, the testimony from Eric Holder.
HOLDER: Well, the statute would not -- would not necessarily cover that. We're talking about crimes that have a historic basis. Groups who have been targeted for violence as a result of the color of their skin, their sexual orientation, that is what this statute tends -- is designed to cover. We don't have the indication that the attack was motivated by a person's desire to strike at somebody who was in one of these protected groups. That would not be covered by the statute.

At night I walk this stinkin street past the crazies on my block
And I see the same old faces and I hear that same old talk
And Im searching for the latest thing, a break in this routine
Im talkin some new kicks, ones like you aint never seen
This is home, this is Mean Street
(This is) Yes-ah home, the only one I know
An we dont worry bout tomorrow cause were sick of these four walls
Now what you think is nothin might be somethin after all
Now you know this aint no through street, the end is dead ahead
The poor folks play for keeps down here, theyre the living dead
Come on down, (Huh! Ow!) down (This is) to Mean Street
Theyre dancin now, look! Out on Mean Street
I’ve refrained from comment on this.
It’s hard to know who to root for on this one.
The savage black chicks acted like mindless animals, clearly.
But tranny hookers aren’t anyone I’d cheer for either.

Ever heard of something called equal protection of the laws? The equal protection clause of the Constitution of the United States?
The laws must be enforced evenhandedly, not just for those who are protected on a “historical” basis. You pulled that phrase out of hat.
Clash of the PC titans. Ghetto culture vs. LGBT lunacy. No excuse for the animals who attacked the victim, but he should have never been in there. In a saner culture he would have been discouraged from the course that his life has taken. Once we abandon sanity and objective Judeo-Christian morality we end up with chaos. And I remember a time when young ladies(term loosely used) did not engage in vicious attacks. But that is old-fashion and sexist of me.
This nation needs to turn back to God but quick. We are headed for collapse.
Real, real intelligent to beat a tranny hooker until you draw blood. If you have a death wish, I suppose.
What about the other people who stood around and did little or nothing?
Anyone who did this is complicit in this horrible crime and should be prosecuted.
The so called victim was a dude in the ladies room and the Sistas took care of it. Not a hate crime IMO.
this is black vs gay community. Coulter had a ranking system for them in how the left treat each group
So she is a he? I wonder who paid for the sex change since he/she has never worked. Anyway the two savages should have been shot.
What’s a “dudette”?
That's because you're taking two independent circumstances and trying to synthesize them into one. First, the transgender freak brought the action upon himself. Second, his actions did not justify the response, and the two assailants ought to be charged with assault.
Yes. And we all need to be EQUALLY protected under the law.
A Republic stands only if it has people of character who demand it.
Duh, not what happened, the black hookers called her a she in the police report statement.
Ghetto blacks, as a group, have not taken to the cultural Marxist brainwashing that gay is good. Not sure why. Maybe because they don’t, as a rule, pay much attention in school and they don’t watch mainstream entertainment.
I agree with you. At first I heard that this was a situation of black girls beating up a white girl.
Now I find that they thought they were beating up a pervert.
Had this been a creepy man or a sexual predator (and by appearances, these girls thought that’s what they were dealing with) there wouldn’t be any argument that they were doing the right thing.
Why does the article refer to the victim as “she”? One’s sex is evident in every cell in the body.
Beating someone into a seizure is "taking care of" the "crime" of using the girl's restroom?
Not hard for me, not for an instant. A transgenered person uses what is clearly the most appropriate restroom and gets beaten by evil thugs.
On today of all days, I know which side to root for.
oh oh .... look out.....Omar commin’....
Special rights for special classes will run it's course with reality given enough time.
Python eats own tail kinda thing.
I agree. This story is much different than it initially appeared. Concur that the black girls reacted way out of proportion. On the other hand, a man in drag walking into a girls bathroom is just asking for trouble. The behavior of the McDonald’s staff was very disturbing, through employees these days are often coached not to get involved when trouble arises.
I almost wonder if its been staged as the opening shot in a campaign to force public venues to accomodate trannies. You know this is coming. In 20 years (or less), I expect to see Mens, Womens, and Trans washrooms. Strange? Yes, but 20 years ago, who thought we’d be seeing gay marriage?
From the article, "They said, 'That's a dude, that's a dude and she's in the female bathroom,' " said Chrissy Lee Polis, 22, who said she stopped at the Rosedale restaurant to use the restroom.
This was a man fully surgically transformed into a woman physically. Should the person learn to squat over a urinal? Such a strange thing. Internet tough guys and people conflicted in their ranking of bigotry struggle with this episode.
All of the blacks I know are Christian. The "ghetto" blacks were usually raised by a Christian grandma or mama and some of that rubbed off.
Before anyone jumps on me, I'm saying that some of the Christian values (like anti-homosexuality) are still considered intolerable. The ghetto mentality takes it to the violent place.
It's too bad that other Christian values don't stick with that generation. Things like family values and personal responsibility.
I don't know that he,..er..she.. IT has had it's plumbing fixed.
I reckon folks can consider themselves "transgendered" with a bit of cross-dressing and mannerisms.
Transgender is the state of one's "gender identity" (self-identification as
woman, man, neither or both) not matching one's "assigned sex".
A woman who stops by the McDonald's to pee, and when assaulted, pulls out a .44 magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and blows that punks head clean off his shoulders...
But I think they were using it as slang for their target of opportunity; for their fun (repeatedly coming back, again and again to land another blow or kick).
I think this is the left ranking system
black > gay > jew > female
the left will support the black beating of the transgender, unless somehow they find those black were conservatives, then they will turn on them
I'm pretty sure you won't hear anything but silence.
The police report, the office document says otherwise.
Regardless of what this person is, regardless if he/she had a record or was intoxicated, he/she is still a human being. (granted, a confused human being.)
These animals beat this person because he/she was white.
They saw a weak looking white person to gang up on and vent their rage.
When they discovered the victim was a transexual, they started with the ‘dude in the ladie’s restroom’ bit.
(The family states the victim had had an operation to remove his male parts. Just where is the victim supposed to use the restroom?)
From all reports, he/she was outside the restroom when they spit in his/her face and started to beat him/her.
Another case of black rage/hate against whites.
The animals who beat this person should be jailed. All the McDonalds employees who stood around and did nothing during this savage attack should be fired. I hope the victim sues McDonalds for every penny they have.
This one is tough because the victim was surgically transformed from man to woman. Where would one go ?
If you ever had to pick a perfect script for a Woody Allen movie....this is it. Someone will ask for the minority numbers on the Baltimore police squad and how many trans-gendered there are...and thereby create a necessity to hire a dozen....mostly out of state and from Austin, TX. McDonalds will have to search for a trans-gendered lawyer to handle their position and hustle up some guy-gal from San Diego. The Baltimore city council will spend a good bit of time talking about how friendly Baltimore is toward guy-gal’s but be unable to cite any facts. Eventually, when the movie is discussed...it’ll be Matt Damon playing the guy-gal, with Pauly Shore brought in to be a McDonalds employee. It’ll win Matt an Academy award for best actor and Pauly will finally win a best supporting actor.
Obviously the attackers should have used their “Beginning Brain Surgery” and “Rocket Science 101” books to beat the he/she with. I guess they weren’t thinking, probably in a hurry between classes.
I hadn’t heard the tranny part.
Less clear-cut now, if you ask me.
I’ve seen guys stumble into the wrong restroom and get screamed at but beat up? That’s a bit deep.
Regardless of what’s right or wrong, sometimes discretion is the greater part of valor. IOW, watch where you go to heed nature’s call.
I think it’s tough cause I don’t want a man with manufactured girl parts squating over a urinal in front of my sons. I figure the person might have an identity crisis and be attracted to little boys enough to be surgically changed. Let thus person go to the womans room since they think they are a woman and want attention from men.
Two Wrongs will never make a Right (Correct, Proper). In this situation we have two “Rights” in competition in the Press.
One is the “Right” to say, “I’m Black and the victim of hundreds of years of White oppression therefore I can do ANYTHING I want to ‘Whitey’.
The other is the fairly recent “Right” to do whatever I want in my quest to “Explore my Sexuality”.
Both are wrong.
The whole concept of “I Got My Rights, everyone else be damned” is two trains on the same track heading toward each other. One He!! of a train wreck coming!
Guaranteed to ‘Go Viral’ on YouTube.
Liberals and our government are partly to blame by pretending that homosexuality is normal.
And the restrooms... We should have unisex restrooms or 4 restroom types: Male, female, homosexual, lesbian. Why? Well, why do we now have two types? Because women don't like men gawking at them when they're trying straighten out their bras and pantyhose, etc. Well, as a normal male I don't like homos gawking at me either, so I should have the same protection. I don't really expect businesses to have to build 2 new restrooms everywhere, but it just shows the problems that are created when people pretend things to be true that aren't true.
Other examples: Pretending that blacks aren't people (slavery). Pretending that Jews aren't people (holocaust). Pretending that preborns aren't people (abortion).
That doesn’t surprise me. People frequently refer to transsexuals as “she”, even when knowing they’re transsexuals. It just shows how convoluted this is.
It was not a man dressed as a woman. It was a man transformed surgically into a woman. I don’t want that person in the men’s room looking at my sons while peeing sitting on the trough.
Dose not make any difference what she was, even a bull dike, you do not endorse beating the hell out of someone.
There is an extremely high rate of HIV infection in Baltimore’s black gay community. Do you think these two black women would have beaten Chrissy Lee Polis if her skin had been black? Now be honest.
